Ever since the book came out, I've received feedback about how it's made women think about friendships throughout their lives, as well as who is in their lives now. The goal of this blog is to open up and create a dialogue about friendships: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Each week I will post my thoughts, experiences, as well as various articles, topics or quotes that I feel are important when examining female friendships. Please feel free to leave comments; I look forward to hearing from you!

Camp Memories

Every summer, I become nostalgic for my sleep-away days at Camp Matoaka in Maine.  From the age of 10 until 15, I would spend 8 weeks at camp and I loved every second of it.  Those unforgettable experiences were helpful for when I moved to attend college, since I was used to being away from home.
I also learned how to live with other women – we shared cabins with at least 10 other campers.  For example, I learned that we couldn’t blow dry our hair at once (power outage!) and that it was fun to share clothes (another wardrobe!) – among many other things young girls discover during the bumpy rollercoaster ride that is adolescence. 

I developed some truly amazing connections over those summers.  Every now and then, I will see what these women are up to while logged onto Facebook.  As an adult, I long for those easy care-free days – not a worry in the world.

Do you have moments from your childhood that you become nostalgic for?  Do they involve childhood friends and/or certain seasons?
